The Point in Time (PIT) is an annual sheltered and unsheltered count of people experiencing homelessness that is conducted across the nation on the last week of January each year. The PIT Count is essential to gain a better understanding of the number of people who are experiencing homelessness in Oakland County on any given night. The data gathered helps shape policy and programs designed to assist some of our most vulnerable residents.
We are in need of volunteers to go out and canvass Oakland County to count and survey individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness. Volunteers create a team of 3-5 people and are assigned a specific map(s) of their designated geographic area to canvass. Volunteers can either be a Team Leader, or a Team Member. Team Leaders are responsible for recruiting Team Members along with training them in preparation for PIT.
